IN PICS: Nutanix hosts X tour for partners and customers in Aussie

28 Nov 2016

Nutanix recently held two ‘X Tours’ which took the best of the company’s flagship event .NEXT to Brisbane and Melbourne.

The software company that sells hyper-converged infrastructure appliances gave its customers and partners a firsthand look at the new era of IT, exposing them to the potential of the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud platform. Both events featured key speakers from Nutanix and its partners.

These events come not long after the company unveiled interest in doubling its ANZ business this year – and quadrupling it within three years.

The hyperconverged vendor’s new ANZ boss recently highlighted the Xpress SMB offering as a key growth area. Nutanix’ Xpress appliance is designed to take the Nutanix enterprise cloud platform to business of 500 end users or below.

The company has been on a high growth path in ANZ since its launch here three years ago, doubling its staff numbers in the past year.
